Now that I'm a busy mom, hosting a cocktail party is a rare phenomenon, however I do enjoy them. So when I was asked by the people at Orbit gum to share my favorite cocktail party tips, I decided it was an excuse to try out some new cocktail party recipes. I love pairing cocktails with hors d'oeuvres, so I thought this would be a fun challenge.
I actually started with the drink. I love Rieslings because they are so light and crisp. I mixed an inexpensive Riesling from Trader Joe's with some deliciously sweet and tangy blood oranges from the farmer's market. I threw in a hint of mint to give it a subtle complexity and a splash of color, and voila... My new favorite party drink.
